Visibly Intoxicated and Wearing a Boston Bruins Jersey

Now, I'm not saying that all Boston Bruins' fans are intellectually-challenged, but...

"The passengers and crew of Delta Flight 1102 on its way to Boston were given a scare Tuesday night when an apparently drunken passenger pulled a handle on one of the emergency exits in mid-flight.

The flight, which originated in Orlando, was about halfway to Boston when a man, visibly intoxicated and wearing a Boston Bruins jersey, pulled the emergency exit handle he was seated next to, passengers said after landing at Logan International Airport. The man was identified late Tuesday night as Robert J. Hersey, 43, of Arlington." (source)

This comes after a week of lunatics doing odd things on planes:

"A passenger aboard an American Airlines flight bound from Chicago to San Francisco on Sunday night was restrained by passengers and crew while attempting to force his way through the cockpit doors shortly before the plane landed. Earlier Sunday, a passenger aboard a Continental flight bound for Chicago from Houston had to make an unscheduled stop in St. Louis because a passenger got out of his seat, rushed to the front of the airplane and attempted to open a flight door.

Also on Sunday, a Delta flight bound from Detroit to San Diego was diverted to Albuquerque, New Mexico, after a flight attendant found a suspicious note in a lavatory." (source)

OBL dead and people think they can do whatever this wish mid-flight?

I must admit that I love the mention of the Bruins jersey each time this incident is reported...
